    I have the same problem. The small orange light on the front of the camera remains lit when I attempt to snap a shot. When I click the shutter button, nothing happens.

    Any thoughts?

    Exact same problem. When I manually turn the flash off, the camera works.

Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't take a picture when the shutter button is pressed, or with an inoperative flash. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try:

Why does my camera not capture any picture? Whichever mode I use, it does not capture any picture regardless of how many times I click the button.


Flash flicker is the camera trying to get enough light to focus, It occurs when you press the shutter release part of the way down.
Try the same thing outside, ensure you press the shutter real ease all the way down. If it still does not fire, switch the lens to manual focus (sliding switch on the side of the lens, move from A to M) If the camera shoot then, the camera is struggling to auto focus.
